Chamber Ensemble of London - LU Arts event

15 Nov 2017

The Chamber Ensemble of London performs at Loughborough

The Chamber Ensemble of London, consisting of 14 string players, will be performing at Loughborough University’s Martin Hall on Saturday 25 November.

Performing alongside Jacqui Dankworth, renowned storyteller and narrator, the two will showcase a classical concert not to be missed.

Jacqui is known primarily for her work as a jazz singer but her experience spans across multiple genres, performing alongside the likes of Paloma Faith and the Brodsky Quartet.

Directed by violinist Peter Fisher, who the Times has previously described as one of “a handful of the world’s finest musicians”, each of the string players have been handpicked as some of London’s finest, with their repertoire including romantic, classical and new music.

The programme for the evening is as follows:

Rimsky-Korsakoff: The Young Prince and the Young Princess arr. Kreisler/Fisher

Clive Jenkins: The White Bird, an old Dartmoor Legend

Alan Ridout: Ferdinand the Bull


Saint-Säens: Danse Macabre

Telemann: Don Quixote (Suite)

John Dankworth: Tom Sawyer’s Saturday

The Chamber Ensemble of London has performed at multiple venues, including St James’ Piccadilly and the Purcell Room. They have also attended numerous festivals and music societies outside of London. 

The show will start at 7:30pm on Saturday 25 November at Martin Hall. General tickets are £13, £10 for concessions and £5 for students, which can be booked online or purchased at the LU Arts Box Office at Loughborough Town Hall on 01509 231914.
